[Update January 3, 2023: eBay has continued Boxing Day sales into January, but as 2023 moves on, you'll be able to find all the best tech bargains on our eBay best tech deals page.]
Christmas is a thing of the past and Boxing Day has finally arrived. Of course, eBay was a little early in kicking off its Boxing Day sale (opens in new tab), but now that the date itself has officially arrived we expect the deals to only get better from here.
If you want to get ahead of the game, you can still sign up for a 30-day free trial to eBay Plus (opens in new tab) to gain an edge. There'll be a stack of deals for everyone, but eBay Plus members sometimes get a little extra off the top with exclusive coupons and savings on shipping eligible items.
Here you'll find the best eBay Boxing Day deals we've spotted, while if you want to find even more deals to finish off the year you can check out our 2022 Boxing Day sales hub for all the best tech bargains across the web.

eBay Boxing Day sales: all the information you need to know
When is eBay’s Boxing Day sales?
The day directly after Christmas is Boxing Day, so you can expect to start seeing deals popping up December 26. eBay generally refreshes daily deals in the morning on the sales date (typically at 10am AEDT), but it’s also likely we’ll start to see some early Boxing Day deals and coupons popping up across the site just before Christmas.
Some deals will end at 11.59pm AEDT on December 26, but there’ll likely be a bunch that roll over into the following week and even in January, giving you a chance to pick up some handy back-to-school gadgets at a lower price before the new school year starts.
Will only eBay Plus members be able to get deals on Boxing Day?
There’ll be deals for everyone on eBay during Black Friday, with individual stores offering up discounts across listings as well as further coupons to be found on selected products. With that said, if you want to save on shipping on eligible items and get access to exclusive member-only coupons, you can sign up for eBay Plus and test out the service with a 30-day free trial (opens in new tab). It’s AU$49 for a yearly subscription after the free trial, but if the service is not right for you, you can cancel anytime within those 30-days to avoid paying a cent.
What is eBay Plus?
eBay Plus is a subscription service offered by eBay that gives you access to additional coupons and deals, offers free shipping on eligible items, and has additional perks including cheaper movie tickets to Hoyts on Tuesdays. There’s a 30-day free trial (opens in new tab) if you want to test it out, and if you decide to continue using the service, there’s a AU$4.99 fee per month or an annual fee of AU$49 a year.
If you want to find out more, we’ve gathered all the information you need to know about an eBay Plus membership right here.
What retailers can I find on eBay?
While just about anyone can sell on eBay, there are a number of large retailers who also sell on the site. Some top sellers include Microsoft (opens in new tab), Dell (opens in new tab), Lenovo (opens in new tab), The Good Guys (opens in new tab), Bing Lee (opens in new tab), Big W (opens in new tab) and many more. Some of these retailers get exclusive coupons to the store, but you can also often find general coupons that work across multiple stores but only on eligible products.
Before checking out, take a close look at the product’s listing to see if there’s any available coupons. You’ll need to make sure you type in the coupon code to score the bargain. We’ll list off any coupons we find in this hub and let you know what products they’re available on.
eBay Boxing Day sales: what to expect
eBay offers up a huge range of goods with coupons and deals, so it’s easy to get lost while hunting for that next prized possession. From previous Boxing Day sales, we have a good idea on what will likely be on offer, so we’ve created this list to help you keep an eye out for the best bargains on the items you really want.
Consoles and accessories
This will be your last chance to pick up deals on games, consoles and accessories before 2023 rolls around. Retailers with eBay stores like The Gamesmen (opens in new tab) and Big W (opens in new tab) often offer up bargains across a variety of platforms, including the Nintendo Switch and, on occasion, the Xbox Series S. It’s not too often we’ll see the PlayStation 5 itself pop up on eBay, but you can generally find an assortment of games and accessories for the console.
The Nintendo Switch OLED has been bouncing in and out of sales across retailers on eBay throughout this year. eBay Plus members were offered the best price we’ve seen on the Splatoon 3 version of the console, with its price dropping to AU$379 for an extremely limited time on Big W eBay during an eBay Tuesday sale. While it’s unlikely that we’ll see that astronomical saving again for a while, it will be worth watching the Nintendo Switch OLED and its predecessor, the Nintendo Switch, to see if retailers on eBay sneak in one last saving before 2023.
Laptop and PC accessory deals
You’ll be able to get ready to go back to school with some brand new gear if this year’s Boxing Day sales are anything like the last. On December 26, 2021 there was a huge variety of laptops and monitors offered across a variety of retailers so you could find the device perfect for your needs.
If you were looking for a laptop that was perfect for presentations, the Dell Inspiron 15 2-in-1 laptop scored a massive AU$1,650 off on Dell’s eBay store. You needed to use a coupon to nab this bargain, but with a sleek design and great specs including an 11th-gen Intel Core i7 chip, it was one bargain not to miss.
Boxing Day 2021 was a great time to upgrade your home entertainment setup with a brand new TV. Some of the latest models scored a discount, and we expect that there’ll be a variety of both newer and older TVs on sale during this year’s sales.
Before the fantastic LG C2 OLED, there was also the very good LG C1 OLED TV. Bing Lee’s eBay store offered up some big savings across this range, with savings as high as AU$1,303 off on offer. It wasn’t just limited to one sized TV either, so if you’ve been holding out to score a brand new TV, eBay’s 2022 Boxing Day sales might very well offer up some big savings.
There’s a massive variety of appliances across eBay, and you’d be hard pressed to not find what you’re after. Whether you want a stand mixer from KitchenAid or one of Dyson’s top vacuum cleaners, there’s multiple reliable retailers on eBay that offer up these highly sought after goods.
2021 gave us offerings across some of Dyson’s older vacuum cleaners such as the Dyson V7 and Dyson V8. In 2022, we’ve seen savings on newer models, including regular discounts on the Dyson V12 and even a rare deal on the Dyson V15. Black Friday noticeably saw the absence of a deal on the V12, but it would be worth keeping an eye out to see if it scores one in this last sale for 2022.
Top eBay Boxing Day deals from 2021
Nintendo Switch OLED |
AU$539 AU$489 on Big W eBay (AU$50 off)
Throughout 2022, we've seen some huge savings on different Nintendo Switch OLED consoles. Back in 2021, AU$50 was a huge saving, but since then, the lowest we've seen any Nintendo Switch OLED console drop to is AU$379 for eBay Plus members (Nintendo Switch OLED Splatoon 3 edition). Fingers crossed we get another standout deal on this very fun console to close out the year.
Dell Inspiron 15 (7506) 2-in-1 | i7 / 16GB RAM / 512GB SSD |
AU$2,949 AU$1,299 on Dell eBay (AU$1,650 off)
Versatile and perfect if you're after a device to present with, the Dell Inspiron 15 2-in-1 laptop was discounted down to AU$1,299 during Black Friday 2021. It features a sleek chassis and a stylus-compatible screen, so it was a great option for anyone after a device for taking note on.
Alienware 38-inch curved gaming monitor (AW3821DW) |
AU$2,499 AU$1,499 on Dell eBay (save AU$1,000 off)
If you were after a new monitor, this was a a great deal. AU$1000 off this 38-inch curved gaming monitor from Alienware with IPS Nano Colour technology and Nvidia G-Sync Ultimate was a fantastic bargain for a panel that can help you feel fully immersed in your favourite game.
LG 55-inch C1 OLED TV |
AU$2,795 AU$1,926 on Bing Lee eBay (save AU$869 off)
During Boxing Day 2021, the LG C1 was the best OLED TV you could buy. Since then, it has been surpassed by the LG C2, but that just means we're likely to see some more deals on the C1 in upcoming sales. AU$1,962 was an all time low price for this fantastic TV this time last year.
Dyson V8 Absolute |
AU$899 AU$569.05 on Dyson eBay (save AU$329.95 off)
Exclusive to eBay Plus members last year, you could save over AU$300 on the Dyson V8 Absolute from Dyson's official eBay store. Now with both the Dyson V12 and Dyson V15 on the market, it's possible we might see an even bigger discount on this older yet still quite powerful vacuum.
